Two soldiers were martyred when terrorists attacked a security forces’ check post in the Singwan area of Balochistan’s Kech district along the Pakistan-Iran border, the military’s media affairs wing said on Thursday.
According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), a group of terrorists opened fire at a check post.
“Since troops at the post were already alert, they responded gallantly with all available weapons, and a heavy fire exchange ensued,” it said.
The ISPR stated that the security forces successfully pushed the terrorists back. However, during the “intense exchange of fire”, 34-year-old Sepoy Hasnain Ishtiaq, a resident of Dera Ghazi Khan, and 27-year-old Sepoy Inayatullah, hailing from Jhal Magsi, embraced martyrdom.
